T-Rex: Folks think the Roman Empire was pretty great, and yeah it lasted a few centuries and yeah it covered a lot of the world, but did they ever invent Batman?
T-Rex: THEY DID NOT.
T-Rex: They didn't even have ANY members of the Justice League: no Flash, no Superman, no Aquaman. Any culture without knowledge of Batman must be less than a culture that DOES have one or more Batmen, therefore, the Romans were no big deal. T-Rex: Thank you for coming to my unannounced TED talk, whose theme was "correct ideas".
Utahraptor: The Romans had their pantheon of gods!! T-Rex: So?
Utahraptor: So Neptune is Aquaman, Jupiter is Superman, Mercury is Flash, etc. T-Rex: Okay OBVIOUSLY I forgot about that, but still: NO BATS. And could Jupiter truly fire lasers out of his eyes and freeze things with his breath?? Utahraptor: Well, I INTEND TO FIND OUT.
T-Rex: That's right! Become an expert on Ancient Rome just to prove my superhero thing wrong! Find a story where Jupiter turns a criminal into a giant ice cube by breathing on him, or admit I'm right!! T-Rex: EITHER WAY I WIN
